Well yesterday I cut the column tube 25mm. I cut it in small section and kept fitting it till I got right. I still have to make the slice on the tube for the clamp. Spoke to James from JBCW and showed him some photos. Looks like I have to rotate the bottom U-jont 90* and im good to go with this section of the build. I still need to have the spacer cut at the machine shop. Just haven't had the time to drive out to the shop. Gotta clean the metal shavings also and reinstall the brake lines.

Installed the brake lines. Had to bend one a little so it didn't rub against the clamp. Pretty happy how this install went. I still have the spacers that need to be cut for the LCA's and install outer tie rods. Made some good progress this week so Im pretty happy for once lol. Also pulled out me heater core so I can have it flushed. Pulled it apart and gave it a good cleaning. Need to grab some paint so I can give it a nice paint job as well. Im gonna prep everything so I can make the lines to install the SR to the heater core easy. Seen a lot of different way to do it so I have options. Mocked up the future fab turbo manifold. FYI this manifold does clear the stock steering box. Going to have to modify and tig a new drain pipe for the oil return. But other than that couldn't be happier . Happy Friday folks

Cleaned and prepped the metal dash about a month ago. Here's the only photo I found of that process. Primer and painted it satin black. It had a lot of surface rust. Also after I pulled the metal frame out I actually got to see what the original color to my 2 door nice yellow.

Did some TIG welding at my buddy house today. Cant wait to get my own machine. Anyhow welded on some male end AN fittings today for my heater core set up. Shit was a PITA. That old piping was not friendly at all. My buddy helped me fab up a new oil drain for the turbo. I gotta make sure, the next time I order weld on fitting I get the correct ones. These did the job regardless.
